BFI2022: Year one

BFI2022 is our strategic five year plan. One of our commitments is to measure our contribution to the economic and cultural success of film over the lifetime of the plan.

It contains 13 measures of success defined in agreement with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

As set out in BFI2022, our five year strategic plan, by 2022 the BFI will have:

  • Increased the diversity of audiences and talent supported across all BFI activities
  • Increased engagement with BFI activities across the UK and increased the quality and cultural depth of their experience
  • Increased participation of 16-30 year olds across all BFI activities funded programmes
  • Increased access to the BFI’s National Film Archive and those of the regions and nations
  • Further conserved and digitised the most at risk materials within the BFI National Film Archive, notably video and TV
  • Ensured the opportunity to learn about the art of film in school
  • Improved employers’ ability to recruit a skilled workforce across the UK
  • Supported talent to progress in their filmmaking careers
  • Funded a range of innovative and pioneering moving image work intended for a variety of platforms
  • Supported UK films and UK talent which have received recognition domestically and internationally
  • Invested in start-up film businesses outside of London, which have leveraged additional investment and increased levels of employment
  • Supported a greater geographic spread of inward investment production in the UK
  • Supported an economic and cultural environment that keeps UK film industry internationally competitive.

The measures of success are a combination of quantitative and qualitative information.

The quantitative measures, along with a small number of additional indicators as set out in the BFI/DCMS Management Agreement 2017-2022, are below.

A mid-term evaluation is planned in 2019/20 which will provide a view on the progress of the qualitative measures.
